A year ago I tried for three nights to photograph the Deer Lick Group with different exposure times trying to avoid the strong light pollution, but I finally I gave up. Since then I have learned some more about color management and I have dared to stack all the shots and reprocess them. The main galaxy is NGC 7331 (Caldwell 30), a galaxy very similar to Andromeda. The group is close to Stephan's Quintet, although it has no relationship with him.
